  1. I think that if “knee” was actually touching “light” (as something normally does when it’s “on” something) i might have got it. Long time no ‘C’ is really pushing the envelope. I would be genuinely impressed with anyone getting that with no help.

  2. I couldn’t get the neon light. MY 11 year old son got them all though. The last one was a stretch.
